Welcome to show 216 of our podcast “absolutely intercultural” which is the second of a series of “Erasmus podcasts” to celebrate and highlight the 30th anniversary of this “mother of all student exchange programs”. In this episode we are going to hear from the three participants of the program sharing their dearest experiences and stories with you. What is it like to be an Erasmus student? What is is an “Erasmus Experience”? Perhaps living on your own in completely different country for the first time! Stay tuned and listen to our international exchange students from Azerbaijan and Spain, as well as a guest lecturer from Canada.
Listen to an interview with our guest lecturer Lucie Thibault from Brock University in Canada. She will tell us about some differences between Germany and Canada, which also covers the travelling.
Seymur Garamollayev from Azerbaijan University will tell us about the use of the English language in Azerbaijan and Germany, as well as about his first days in Germany. He will also share his version of his “Erasmus experience”.
In our last category, Omar Sotillo Franco from Spain will tell us about his experience with the exchange program Erasmus and how he managed to live completely on his own in a foreign country for a whole year. It was not easy, as even the way people held their forks and knifes in Germany was different.
